Peek inside rehearsals with Rehearsal Cam

When you think of a Shakespearean rehearsal room what do you imagine? You might be surprised at the things that go on in rehearsals for our productions.

That's why we've just started our Rehearsal Cam Tumblr, so that you can see the rehearsal process through the eyes of our company. We've asked the actors and creatives in the Henry IV Parts I and II company to capture any interesting moments on their phone cameras.

We've already had short video clips and rehearsal 'selfies' from the company. We'll be publishing them all on the Tumblr page, sharing them on the RSC Instagram page and tweeting them too on the @TheRSC Twitter account – look out for the #rehearsalcam.

More ways to see inside the rehearsal room
Regular readers of our Whispers From The Wings blog and News and updates pages will already know that rehearsals at the RSC aren't just actors in codpieces enunciating iambic pentameter.

For Henry IV Parts I and II the company have already had archery lessons, a visit to the Museum of London  and an exclusive tour of Westminster Abbey as part of their preparations to bring the next part of Shakespeare's histories to the stage.

In The Roaring Girl rehearsals the female actors spent some time learning to be a 'drag king' last week.

Let us know what else you'd like to see from behind the scenes at The RSC. Tweet us using #rehearsalcam or leave a comment on our Facebook page.
